Folyo.me is the online home of Folyo, a website that says they want to provide both freelance designers and their potential clients with a better way to find each other and collaborate together.
How Does It Work?
Folyo.me says that their website strives to improve upon the traditional freelance employment website, saying that most traditional jobs boards are inadequate and leave people sorting through piles of spam.
This website says that other freelance websites treat freelance designers and clients as enemies, instead of teammates. The entire process of partnering together to work on a project starts with a fierce negotiation about budget and pricing, and not about the project itself or the qualities your design may be able to bring to your project that others can’t.
Folyo says that clients and designers generally have the same goals – a high quality project completed quickly and efficiently, which is why Folyo.me doesn’t let their clients post pre-determined budgets for their projects. Instead, they start with the work that needs to be done and the designers that are best qualified for that work.
After clients have matched up with the best designers for their needs, they can work together as a team to determine the parameters of the project, including the budget. Working together as a real team will make the process more rewarding and more successful for both parties.
Unfortunately it does not appear that this website publishes any information at this time regarding the cost of their services, which is especially frustrating as it is clear that they do charge fees for their initial memberships and may even offer different upgrades in membership.
In addition, though this company does offer both a Help section of their website and a published Terms and Conditions, neither of these proves very helpful in finding information because the Help link appears to be broken at this time and the Terms and Conditions is extremely limited in scope. Concerned customers will need to reach out to their Customer Service team for the answers to these questions.
As this website isn’t very clear about any potential fees or charges associated with their services, they also aren’t very on the subject of cancellation and refunds. Their Terms and Conditions does mention that people who are not happy with their purchase for any reason are welcome to request a refund of their money, “up to the last 30 days.” But because they don’t offer a full explanation of their fees and charges, however, this policy isn’t very clear to prospective members.
If you have encountered any kind of problem that you believe justifies a refund of your membership fees, you should contact their Customer Service team right away.

This company does not appear to have very many reviews at this time, and of the few reviews that are available some people have reported having issues with their Money Back Guarantee, or their lack of a Money Back Guarantee, it isn’t completely clear. Unfortunately, because this company does not have a working Help link on their website, and their Terms & Conditions are abbreviated and don’t provide much information or detail, it is difficult to know exactly what policies this company has in place for their users.
Concerned customers should speak to their Customer Service team in order to make sure all their questions are answered before they choose to work with this website.
